    Need to find out exactly what MB said. He's not known for his subtlety. Could be it was a tasteless joke.
    Yet and still, I doubt Ms. Bonds would have had such an easy climb without him. Course that depends on who was wagging the tail. I seem to remember he did quite well during the times she was not directly associated with his positions.

    Also glad to hear she's NOBODY'S puppet. Hope that declaration includes the honchos at Ft. Myers. Nah...that would be asking toooooo much.

    Maybe Ms. Bonds, Ms. Cheh, Evans and Catania can all take the plunge and resign those outside positions together. Now THAT would be progress.

    Good Luck Anita, you're gonna need it if you took MB's jibe (I hope), the wrong way. Can't see him being foolish enough to put something like that out publicly....well...maybe.

    LOL.... Just 90 or so mores days, then we can be done with the "appointed" one! Bonds is a fool. She thinks by going against Barry it will endear her to all of the "progressive" folks that are against Barry. Just like the last interim council member, Bididdle, interim idiots fumbling through their "working interviews"!

    As long as I live and as old as I am, (And I plan on that being a long, long time): I WILL NEVER FORGET THE BODY LANGUAGE MADAME RHEE EXHIBITED WHEN SHE LEFT HER FIRST MEETING WITH VINCE GRAY AFTER HIS ELECTION. SHE LOOKED LIKE SHE WAS EXPECTING COLUMBO TO MATERIALIZE WITH THE FINGER SAYING..."OH, ONE MORE THING.......

    If I hadn't already been a Gray fan, that moment would have won me over for life. Have some offspring who got stiffed by that pompous ass; and the Mayor did more than show her who was BOSS!! He punished that self-entitled...well, let's just say 'b'.

    One of these days if I find myself 1:1 with Gray I intend to ask if he can share how he brought miss high & mighty to her knees.

    You're right noodlez, as my great-grandkids would say: "DC is SO over her."

    Does the retirement bubble pertain to all those crackhead cops hired in the 90's?
